Hauppauge to release set top boxes, portable media players

Hauppauge is probably best known for its line of TV tuners that let you watch and record live television on a computer. But it looks like the company is expanding it product line in a big way.

At CeBIT Hauppauge announced several new products, including:
  • A 149 Euro portable media player that can pick up live digital TV using the UK's Freeview standard
  • The 199 Euro HD-PVR USB TV tuner that encodes 720p and 1080i video on the fly using the H.264 codec
  • The HVR2200, a 129 Euro dual-tuner Freeview card
And today, the company has announced plans to release a set top box using the DiVX Connected software platform. There's not a lot of information about this box, but I assume it'll allow users top access web content from sites like YouTube and Google Video. Once upon a time, DiVX was showing off this set top boxes that could access the company's Stage6 video sharing service, but that site was shut down recently. You'll also probably be able to stream content over a home network from any PC in the house.

What ever happened to that PCI tuner card that was going to have component input and support recording to h.264?
